HOWEVER, I love this movie. Michael J. Fox is hilarious as well as convincing. The supporting cast is beautifully quirky, deceptively complex and interesting. There is a stunning contrast between the Washington DC hospital where Dr. Stone completes his training (violent & tumultuous), the small southern town that he is trying to escape (serene & friendly) and the LA plastic surgery practice that he wants to join(cold & impersonal).
While serving as the small town's GP, he learns through his interactions with the locals that living in a peaceful town is a quality of life choice - not a horrible fate for those that don't know better. I can watch this one over and over.
